Alberta Cancer Foundation

Hole-in-One for Cancer Care

Every August for the last 25 years, a dedicated group of Alberta Cancer Foundation volunteers have worked tirelessly to make sure the Cross Cancer Institute Golf Classic is a success. And a success it has been. A summer staple at the Alberta Cancer Foundation, the Cross Cancer Institute Golf Classic has supported the Cross Cancer Institute's patients and their families and has funded groundbreaking cancer research projects and expanded the boundaries of cancer treatment and patient care in Alberta.

Thanks to our donors, volunteers, sponsors and golfers, an incredible $9 million has been raised by the Cross Cancer Institute Golf Classic, and has helped revolutionize cancer research and treatment in Edmonton and beyond.

Congratulations on this incredible milestone. The 25th annual Cross Cancer Institute Golf Classic runs August 8, 2013 at the Glendale Golf and Country Club.
